Switching pharmacies could save you a lot of money on prescription drugs, even if you have health insurance. An investigation published in the May 2018 issue of Consumer Reports found that HealthWarehouse.com was the cheapest place to fill prescriptions, beating second-place Costco Wholesale. For the investigation, secret shoppers called more than 150 drugstores nationwide and compared prices for five generic drugs.

 

 

The price differences were pretty shocking! Consumer Reports said HealthWarehouse.com charged a total price of $66 for the five medications and Costco charged $105. But that’s not the shocking part… The investigation found that the retail cash price for a one-month supply of the same five drugs was closer to $900 at Rite Aid and CVS, the two most expensive pharmacies. You don’t have to call up every pharmacy like Consumer Reports did — there are free apps that will do the work for you! GoodRx and LowestMed search nearby pharmacies for discounts and coupons that you didn’t know existed. Sometimes these apps find prices that are even lower than your insurance co-pay. To use the apps, just enter the name of the drug, dosage, quantity, location and search for the lowest price.
